EMBARGO ON IMPORTATION OF PERSIAN/IRANIAN WORKS OF ART TO THE U.S.A
Please note that there may be restrictions on importing certain types of property of Persian/Iranian origin into the United States. Clients should enquire with the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regarding the proper importation of items subject to such restrictions. Due to recent changes in U.S. law, carpets and rugs of Iranian/Persian origin may no longer be imported into the U.S. Please contact Sotheby's if you are uncertain as to whether a lot is subject to these or any other restrictions or if you need assistance with such enquiries.

In the style of 'Petag' carpets, but unmarked. The German firm Persische Teppich-Gesellschaft (PETAG) was founded in Berlin in 1911 by Heinrich Jacoby (1889-1964). At his initiative, a large workshop was opened in Tabriz to weave carpets that maintained traditional quality against the perceived decline resulting from the mass commercialisation of weaving as a result of Western demand. Using lustrous wool and often vegetable dyes the company revived the art of weaving using old and elegant designs from the 16th and 17th century. Their production is usually marked with a cintamani motif. Jacoby is well-known for his authoritative publication 'Eine Sammlung orientalischer Teppiche' of 1923.
